... scanning calorimeter and allowed the determination of the melting and solidification characteristics, latent heat, specific heat at melting and solidification, and thermal conductivity of the composite. The results of the study showed an increase in thermal conductivity by a factor of 4 when the mass...

...David MacPhee; Ibrahim Dincer The solidification and melting processes in a spherical geometry are investigated in this study. The capsules considered are filled with de-ionized water, so that a network of spheres can be thought of as being the storage medium for an encapsulated ice storage module...

... intensification in thermal conductivity (a factor of 31 at 200 ° C for 20 wt % in graphite). Their melting and solidification temperatures as well as their intrinsic storage capacity are close to the pure salt ones. Compared to the pure salts, the specific latent heat of the composites is reduced...

... of 2, 3, 4, and 6 cm. A detailed temperature field is obtained within the spheres using 10 thermocouple wires. Values of the air velocity and temperature used in the experiments are 4–10 m/s and 60–90°C, respectively. Measured times for melting and solidification varied over a range of 5–15 and 2–5...
